Choose Pronoia!


I was flying down a singletrack trail on my mountain bike yesterday–the trail closed in and became a little brushy. There were curves and overgrown bushes so it was hard to look far enough ahead to see what was coming up. It felt like I was a little blind, in the fog and not knowing what was next.  Just because you’ve gotten really good at something, don’t think the unexpected isn’t around the next corner.IMG_0508

Nothing is certain and just because you’ve seen the same things over and over doesn’t mean you’ll keep seeing them.

Life can be that way sometimes. The certainty of what lies ahead is not certain at all! Anything can happen…the trail could end, a wild animal could approach, a dangerous drop off in the trail could stop you in your tire tracks or you could even come face to face with the love of your life!the shadow tara

The same is true in our everyday lives. You just never know what will come into your life. There could be something amazing just around the corner, just beyond the hidden bend in the road. Keep on riding with the mastery and confidence you’ve developed and you will be able to deal with it when it reveals itself.

Stay calm and confident and don’t get fearful and worried. Life can work out for you if you decide it will.

That’s about as simple as it is–however you decide to anticipate and expect is the way it will most likely work out for you.

As it says in the “Desiderata”, “Go confidently amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence”. Be still and know that all is well and you are supremely guided and protected…be the opposite of paranoid–be Pronoid.

Pronoid–what a concept!  Instead of being paranoid and expecting the worst, be Pronoid–expect the  BEST!

I love life. Life teaches. I love nature. Nature teaches. I never want to lessen the lesson. Let's journey together on this trail called life! I write this blog mostly to get the chatter out of my head! I've never really promoted it but a few people read the articles and find inspiration. It really is therapeutic, writing is like having a place to process the stuff that floats around on a regular basis! In the words of John Muir, the naturalist, this is how I feel: “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”

  1. I am new to reading your blog, yet I have felt your presence my whole life. Thank you Tara for being the light that you are.

  2. “Choose Pronoia! Hiking Los Angeles, Malibu, Santa Monica
    Mountains” was indeed a beneficial posting. If merely there
    was way more websites just like this specific one in the actual internet.

    Anyway, many thanks for ur precious time, Frank
